Sen. Bernie Sanders, who was hospitalized Tuesday and treated for what his 2020 presidential campaign said was a blockage in one artery, had a heart attack, according to a statement his campaign issued Friday quoting his treating physicians.
Bernie Sanders, who back in 1972 wrote an essay on gender whose subject was “she fantasizes being raped by 3 men” has indeed suffered a heart attack, his campaign spox revealed today. Sanders may be off life support, but his campaign for the Democratic 2020 presidential nomination just went on it. At nearly 80 and looking like the ghost of Christmas past, Bernie Sanders best campaign days are certainly behind him.
Joe Biden is also waning as the spotlight on Ukraine intensifies, as he watches his fundraising dry up. All but one of the rest of the pack have lapsed into obscurity, except for ‘Pocahontas‘ Elizabeth Warren who is looking more and more like the one who will get the nomination. None of the Democratic candidates are capable of beating Trump, which is why the Democratic-controlled Congress is trying to impeach him. It truly is the only way they can win.
